Payment Center
Editing Payments

TimeNet Law 2.9.8 is Ready!

TimeNet Law 2.9.8 is here! This update includes over 70 new features, fixes and refinements! Let’s jump in and take a look at what’s new.

The first thing you’ll notice is many refinements to the user interface, including the main window, Accounts window, Matter window, and Payment Center. This is just a hint of what’s to come, as we gear up for the TimeNet Law 3.0 redesign.

The Payment Center has been redesigned to be cleaner and easier to use. Larger retainer buttons make it easier to see at a glance which accounts have funds in them. And working with payments is easier than ever, because you can now double-click a payment or retainer deposit to see all of its details, and even make edits.

Payment Center

Working with matters is now better than ever. This update includes big performance improvements when opening and saving large matters, and a new toolbar shortcut lets you quickly see and edit the client’s contact information. Select an invoice from the invoices drawer and all slips from that invoice will be darkened so you can easily see which slips are from which invoice.


The Accounts window adds new automatic accounts:

Accounts Receivable




See your law firm’s complete financial picture in one simple view. You can still include client payments in any account as well, so all of your accounting is integrated automatically.



Reports have been improved with an even faster engine, and now all report filter settings are saved between sessions, so when you close a report and re-open it, or any other report, your date, client, and timekeeper filters will be remembered. Report window interfaces have also been improved, and saving and loading presets has been added to a number of other reports. There is also a new Tax Report that lets you easily see how much money in taxes you’ve collected in any given time period. Your accounting just got a whole lot easier.

Invoicing has been improved as well. Design refinements to invoice layouts, new customizable label options, the ability to customize how invoice files are named, and One Click Billing improvements all mean better, more flexible invoicing for your law firm.

There’s lots more to discover. See the complete release notes below!
